22. Viking Norseman Churchill

Sponsored by Viking Cigars. Wrapper of a lighter colour and with a darker filler as shown on the shaggy foot.
Silky smooth wrapper with tiny veins. Good construction.
First taste and we start with the shaggy foot, mm creamy milk chocolate, leather, lightly toasted chocolate beans, maybe a touch of salted caramelised almond.
Now entering the wrapper and instantly I’m greated with cedarwood and a touch of pepper on the tip of the tongue for a split second before it smoothens out to a fluffy cloud.
Really smooth experience, thick and fluffy/ voluminous smoke with a firm almost white ash.
In the 3rd part of the cigar the pepper notes come back and stay a few more seconds on the tongue before disappearing into enjoyment, the rest of the flavours consists.
It’s rarely I want to grab a toothpick to stick it in a cigar just because it’s so good that I just doesn’t want it to end, but this cigar made me do it. It was perfect until the very end, no bitterness as some cigars get at the very last 3-4 cm.
Astonishing, if you don’t know what to buy next go for this cigar, because you won’t regret it. This is a perfect cigar to enjoy at any time during the day, preferably indoors but must be fantastic outside in the sun aswell. Big applause to Viking Cigars and Ernesto Perez Carrillo for making this splendid cigar. /Cigarmaster André
